Find out how much bandwidth a device uses in a day
« on: November 09, 2017, 12:06:10 pm »
Hi

I have ntopng installed on my pfSense box.
Is there any way I can see how much bandwidth a device uses in a day, ideally via it's IP Address ?

I'd like to find out how much total bandwidth in & out a specific device is using.

Is that possible ?

Have you looked at BandwidthD.   It's interface is a bit antiquated looking but it does EXACTLY what you're asking.

I did install this, ran it for 24 hours and it displayed nothing.

I assume I set it up wrong. Any guides on how to configure it ?

Thanks

Interesting. 

There really shouldn't be too much to it.  I've run it on old 2.x setups and recently set it up again on 2.4.1

Here are my settings:

Enable BandwidthD should be selected

BandwidthD Interface: LAN
Subnets for Statistics Collection:   Select ALL interfaces (hold down CTRL and click) except your CARP/SYNC interface
Extra Subnets for Statistics Collection:  (Enter other subnets as needed) I have one other.
Promiscuous Mode:  Unchecked
SensorID:  <Make up a name of your choosing>

Draw Graphs:  Checked
Meta REfresh: <default>
Skip Intervals <default>
Graph Cutoff: <default>
Output to CDF: Unchecked
Recover CDF:  Unchecked
Graph and Log Info:  <Informational>

PostgreSQL Options (All Blank and Unchecked).
